C.C. Sabathia and Joe Borowski combined to allow just six hits.
The Indians have experience with winning low-hit games. They won a game despite getting no hits against Matt Young of the Red Sox on April 12, 1992 in the first game of a doubleheader. Cleveland got seven walks in that game and they also stole six bases against Young, who had a mental block about making pickoff throws. Even Cleveland catcher Junior Ortiz had a stolen base, and he was 8 for 26 in steals for his career. In the nightcap, the Indians got two hits off of Roger Clemens, but lost that one.
